Izabella Effenberg – Vibrafon, Crotales, Array Mbira, Glass Harp, Sundrum, Steeldrum, Marimba, Waterphone | Jochen Pfister – Piano | Anton Mangold – Harp, Flute | Yumi Ito – Vocal | Radek Szarek / Bodek Janke – Tabla, Percussion, Drums
Impressions in Colours ist a new project, awarded in the virtual competition Woman in Jazz Next Generation 2020 (Hale/Saale)
The music connects Jazz, classical music and beyond. Improvisation and arranged parts flow together, always allowing exchange between the musicians and different instruments.
All the compositions come from Izabella and are small miniatures in which she is searching for her own destinctive sound.
The focus is on unusual instruments like vibraphone, glass harp, array mbira, steeldrum, marimba, crotales, hapy, sundrum, carillon, etc…, as well as sounds like the prepared piano and in combination with voice and harp.
